It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Getting Some Wrapping Done, Outside Chores Accomplished and Getting A Thank You For Helping Out.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

When we watched the Local News last night the Weather Guessers said that our low for the night would only be 50 F (10 C) but when I turned my Computer on just before 9:00 The Weather Network was showing the temp at 43 F (6 C). I’m wondering what it would have read if the sun had not already been up for nearly two hours.

After having our breakfast we brought our coffees over to the Computers where we got caught up on our reading as well the News about Hurricane Irma and Jose which seems to be following in Irma’s track. We can only pray for anyone affected by theses storms. Luckily Hurricane Katia has been downgraded to a Tropical Storm.

We managed to get a number of things accomplished this morning including producing lists of all Medication and Vitamins that we are both taking. It seems that when you see new doctors they want to know more then just Prescribed Medications these days because even Vitamins can change the results of tests and surgeries. Both Kathy and I are having issues with Cataracts at this time and these lists are part of our initial visit. 

While I put those together Kathy recreated some Leftovers in the fridge and transformed them into lunch. She created a Meat Sauce with Parmesan Cheese over Egg Noodles and topped it off with a serving of Applesauce for dessert. By using Egg Noodles as the form of Pasta she reduced our Carb intake but it still helped give us the needed energy we needed.

As soon as the dishes were washed and put away Kathy started wrapping the Christmas Gifts we brought back from our Storage Unit. Using lists of who the gifts were for she managed to get quite a few things wrapped. My job included making the Name Tags for the Gift Bags that we’ll be giving out at what we are now calling our Merry Thanksmas. Our daughter actually came up with that name last year because we were giving out our Christmas Gifts on the day we were celebrating our Canadian Thanksgiving since we’ll be in the Southwest on Christmas Day. I also had the chore of packing the Gift Bags while Kathy continued wrapping more Gifts.

Kathy also reminded me to make a special Name Tag for a Special Birthday that takes place while we are away. The recipient always looks forward to the gifts we give them. 
The pile of Christmas Gifts is growing.
Kathy was starting to feel overwhelmed by her task so she took a break and got other entries put into her Computer. I went outside and used the Electric Lawnmower that I recently purchased to cut our grass. It did a better job on our thick grass then what our Mower/Trimmer could do because it could lift the thick grass for a neater job. I still used the Trimmer to neatly edge our grass.

I completed the creation the Hose for our Macerator Pump that we’ll use with our new Waste Barrel. I installed a Shutoff Valve at each end so that the odor would be contained and on someone’s recommendation a section of Clear Hose as a means of monitoring the flow was added. 

Just as I was about to go inside Kathy handed me a package of Spare Ribs to grill on our Weber Q for supper while she created a Spinach Salad with Feta Cheese and some Baked Beans for sides. Everything turned out great and tasted Wonderful.

While we were watching the 6 o’clock Local News our neighbour Angela came over to Thank Kathy and I for helping her husband Stan when he lost his balance and fell outside their trailer the other night. She also appreciated that I convinced him to go to the Emergency something she could not do. After a barrage of X-rays on his Leg, Hip and Back there were no fractures found. He was very lucky to have sustained only a bad bruising but lots of pain to go with it.

Tomorrow is another day and while Kathy gets things done inside I’ll try to get things accomplished outside. We have a lot to get done in less then Eight Weeks. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

Ask a silly question:

If cops arrest a mime,

do they tell him he has the right to remain silent?
